Registration is now open for Fall Super Saturdays. The 2019 slate of classes kicks off on Saturday, November 2. Coordinated by The Center for Gifted Studies, Super Saturdays encourages students in grades 1 – 8 who are of high ability or have high interest in a topic to pursue their passions outside the regular classroom. Each year, over 1000 students enjoy the benefits of Super Saturdays.
Through a minds-on, hands-on approach to learning, students explore and investigate areas such as math, art, science, history, writing, music, and performance under the thoughtful guidance of experienced teachers and in the company of enthusiastic, like-minded peers. There are 26 classes including Storybook Science, Impact the World: Leadership for Girls, Verse Novel Jumpstart, Computer Science Discoveries, and Pop Art Printmaking.
With classes taking place on the first four Saturdays in November, Super Saturdays promotes students to continue learning while not in school. Children are encouraged to explore and pursue their passions outside the regular classroom while being in a fun and supportive environment with enthusiastic, like-minded peers.
